While we put a pause on our time outside, we can still celebrate Mother Nature by doing things in our own homes, balconies, or gardens.
Here are a few simple tips to help reduce your impact on our incredible planet.
Dry your clothes outside
As well as being gentler on the fabrics, it’ll save a lot of electricity. Good for your monthly power bill and cuts down on the amount of power used in your community.
Turn off the lights
Did you know that leaving devices on standby costs the average home $100+ per year? Go ahead and turn it off at the wall.
Cook with the lid
Imagine boiling a kettle with its lid open. All that steam is escaping energy, that you’re paying for. The same works with pots and pans. Use the lid (or aluminum foil) and cover the top to keep the heat in and cook your food faster.
Look for products that are made with sustainable processes like our TENCEL Modal Boxer Briefs. TENCEL™ Modal fibers are extracted from naturally grown beech wood by an environmentally responsible integrated pulp-to-fiber process, which is self-sufficient in energy and recovers co-products from component parts of the wood. Plus, they’re insanely soft! 1 tree = 1,800 pairs, and we plant a tree to replace it.
Replace Your Lawn
Sure, it’s fun to spend hours mowing your lawn, but it’s even more satisfying to grow your own food. In fact, if you converted a portion of your green area into a tiny farm, you could have enough veggies and fruit to save some significant money from your grocery budget. Bonus, you’ll be helping the bees and other pollinators.
